Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he plans to approach his next games as “final after final” ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final against Nottingham Forest.
After winning the Carabao Cup final last month, Liverpool still have the chance to claim a quadruple. Along with the upcoming draw in the FA Cup last eight, the Reds have also qualified for the same Champions League stage and are four points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table.
A rearranged midweek league game against Arsenal is the most immediate issue on Klopp’s agenda tomorrow (Wednesday) as they aim to reduce the gap between the top two to a single point. Once that is settled, however, Forest are the next team with an opportunity to make those quadruple dreams come true, when they meet at the City Ground on Sunday.

The Liverpool manager spoke about their approach at a press conference on Tuesday morning. “We have reached a quarter-final in two competitions, and in the Premier League we are not in the worst possible place,” Klopp said. “It’s long, but we’ll try and see what happens.
“It’s final after final after final after final after final after final that we are playing. It’s like that. This is how we prepare, how we set it up.“
Klopp continued: “What kind of different situation could there be there? That we’re 10 points ahead and 10 games to go, and everyone tells you you’re done and asks you where the games will be. celebrations?
“I’ll tell you what, it’s really uncomfortable – not that it’s happened often in my life – but it’s really uncomfortable to sit in this situation. Now everything is in front of us: attack it, chase it, go for it.
The Liverpool manager has also been boosted by the return of top scorer Mohamed Salah to training this week.
